Fun Family Night Ideas - How To Bring The Family Back Together Each Week For Quality Time One Fab Family onesavvymom blog nyc #DataAndAMovie
Looking back over the past year, the theme of the year was definitely gratitude. I found myself ever aware of all that I have to be grateful for. What remains at the top of that list and always will, is my family.
Motherhood never ceases to amaze me.  Don't get me wrong, it's not all sunshine and rainbows. It's definitely laced with difficulties and uncertainty at times. However, as I watch my kids grow by leaps and bounds each year, I've come to know one thing with great certainty. The time that we have with our kiddo's as kids, is so very short in the grand scheme of things.

In an effort to slow down, and enjoy time together as a family more, we've began actively carving out time each week to do something fun together. Sometimes that's an evening trip out and about, while other times, it's a fun family game night or family movie night.  Whatever we do, the focus is fun.

For our family game nights and family movie nights have become a great way to come together and reconnect at the end of a busy week. We've definitely learned to get creative with fun DIY d??cor and themed snacks too, as it makes it all the more special for the kids. And let's face it, I love any excuse I can find to break out the glue gun!
With the launch of the new service plan with Walmart Family Mobile PLUS, we now have Unlimited Talk, Text & Data which includes up to 10GB of 4G LTE plus a free movie on VUDU each month (per line) for just $49.88.
This plan is PERFECT for the family that likes to come together for fun family nights each week.
We can easily navigate when we head out and about with kids, without worrying that we're using all of the data in our plan while en route. We can stream music from our phone to our  Bluetooth speaker to liven the room while playing board games on family game night. We can download fun games and apps to play with the family on family game nights. AND we can stream our free new release VUDU movie rental choice each month on our TV, using our ROKU ($7 value).
Check out some of our fun and easy  family night ideas for your next family movie and family game night, below.
